Peyton’s fate depends on the unlikely pawn in a quarter-century-old crime.

When Agent Peyton Cote discovers a thirteen-year-old Ukrainian boy along the Canadian border, she has no idea who placed him there or why. And Victor Tankov, on his deathbed in Russia, likes it that way. By giving the boy political asylum, Peyton sets in motion a plan twenty-five years in the making, leading back to the world’s largest art heist at Boston’s Gardner Museum.

In his most ambitious work yet, D.A. Keeley blends one of the most famous crimes of the century with the ongoing Ukrainian crisis, creating an action-packed international thriller. As events unfold, Peyton hunts for a painting worth $150 million and the criminal masterminds who are determined to sell it no matter the cost.

D.A. Keeley has published widely in the crime-fiction genre and is the author of six other novels, as well as short stories and essays. In addition to being a teacher and department chair at the Northfield Mount Hermon School, and a member of the Mystery Writers of America, Keeley writes a bi-weekly post for the blog Type M for Murder.

July 2016


The Find Waldo Local Campaign begins on Friday, July 1, at White Birch Books and other locally owned businesses across the nation. The event, sponsored by Candlewick Press, leads participants on a scavenger hunt through their towns’ business districts on a search for the elusive, red-and-white-stripe wearing picture book character.

The campaign, which is co-sponsored by the American Booksellers Association, aims to promote the value of shopping locally through fun activities involving the bespectacled character created by British illustrator Martin Handford in his popular Where’s Waldo? series. Inspired by the first successful Waldo scavenger hunt hosted by Eight Cousins Books in Falmouth, Massachusetts, Candlewick — Handford’s U.S. publisher — launched the month-long Find Waldo Local campaign five years ago.

This year, as in the past, shoppers who spot Waldo at participating local businesses in July become eligible for prizes throughout the month. The celebration then concludes with a closing ceremony or wrap-up party at White Birch Books at the end of the month. Participants will get a “bingo” card with all of the participating businesses listed and can get started from the bookstore. Once we get closer to July 1st we will start listing all of our fellow businesses on our website and FB page. We will be posting photos of where he is in town on our website, FB and Twitter throughout the month. It’s a great way to visit some of our local businesses in a really fun way!
